established in 2023​

13th Moon Games came about Thanksgiving 2021 when roach asked Stephan if he wanted to take their relationship to the next level by writing a table top role playing game together. The motivation, for roach, was to create a game that she could run for Stephan, a forever DM.

The two of us worked on creating Coven & Crucible, spending all of 2022 running playtests and honing the game. They had an unsuccessful Kickstarter in June of that year which taught them a lot and they took those lessons to heart when they relaunced the Kickstarter in January of 2023. That campaign was successful and saw not only the creation of a TTRPG of modern witchcraft and magic but the birth of 13th Moon Games.

roach is an author of pagan and witchcraft books. Her books (Sew Witchy and The Scent of Lemon & Rosemary are both published by Llewellyn Worldwide under the name Raechel Henderson). She is in charge of the setting and story aspects of Coven & Crucible.

Stephan Kelly is a pagan and a life-long table top role playing game player. He is in charge of the mechanics aspects of Coven & Crucible.

The two met at a World of Darkness LARP in 2008. They are married. 

Art Goblin Charlotte is their daughter. She has recently graduated from high school and is taking a gap year before starting college. She has been making art all her life and it is her lifelong passion.

The 13th Moon Team


To create games that encourage collaborative storytelling between players and the storyteller.


Gaming should be fun and should engage a sense of wonder and fanatasy that gives people a break from the real world for a short time​
